Well, for RHEL ES and AS server editions at least,
I think the thinking is that anacron is not really
needed since servers aren't usually turned on and off
regularly, but usually expected to be up all the time.
Comment 2 Bernd Bartmann 2003-12-16 03:00:45 EST
I think this assumption is totally wrong. Even servers are affected by
system maintenance or power outages. This is where anacron comes into
the game. If the power went down right before midnight and comes up
back again after 4 p.m. non of the cron.daily jobs are run (tripwire,
logwatch, updatedb...)

Anacron is now in RHEL-3 (U3).
